Description

When Mackenzie Emily Potter was born in February 2001 she was the perfect little girl. A week later, the original, innocent joy of her first time parents was gone forever. Mackenzie's father had completed a simple study of the Biblical Book of Job before Mackenzie was born, but when medical calamity struck his firstborn child, and then his wife as well, he discovered that his shallow study in Job provided no comfort when comfort was most needed. Instead of comfort, he experienced a hollowing out of his childhood faith and hope. It was spiritual pain added to the deep sorrow of a husband and parent in distress. What followed was a go-for-broke quest to find something in the story of Job's trial that could comfort an actual suffering soul, or else he risked giving up on faith altogether. That journey lasted over ten years and within these pages is a record of the process and the result. This book is both a personal story and a thorough study of the Book of Job. The twin themes of serious textual study and emotional, personal experience are woven together deliberately. One by the grace of God, illuminates the other.show more
